I love Harbor Freight. There's one four blocks from where I just moved. Even with everything as cheap as it is, I still manage to spend too much money there.

Your jeep looks great man! That's basically the same setup I plan on running on my WJ. Just waiting to get the engine back together and find out whether or not I need a tranny rebuild...

Tell us more about that snazzy Hi-lift mount you've got there....

Oh okay! I guess i couldn't see it well enough on my phone. I thought at first you had just chained it down and called it good! Haha. My mistake. But good idea on using the factory rails!
